Toronto Blue Jays - "Back in Black"


McCall

Recommended Posts

I've been working on Blue Jays concepts for awhile, without really making one that I really though would work. After the unveiling of the new Roads, I decided to go off of it, since it was such an improvement over the previous. I made royal blue the primary color again, and brought in navy as an accent/trim color. Instead of doing the beveling that is actually on the lettering and numerals, I instead used a "inner highlighting" effect that I came up with. (not inner-highlighting in general, just the way I did this particular one). I also did a modern retro powder blue, though if this were the real thing, they would probably just use the actual retros that were recently (re)introduced. I couldn't come up with a satisfying hat logo, so I just used the new blue jay head only. If I can come up with something better, I'll edit and replace it. Here we go:

Home/Aways/Alternate (which says 'Blue Jays' for now, but if a better hat logo is created, it would probably go on the left chest and replace the wordmark)

There you have it. Any critiques, pointers, praises, or harsh blasts are welcome. I'm really shakey right now so I gotta go eat something. Thanks.

Very Nice. I like this a lot. Great job. No flaws here.

I've never liked the logo with no J (As seen in other concepts) because it looks incomplete. But It makes sense here. So I can let it go haha.

My only gripe is that it's hard to see the blue cap logo on the blue cap. Everything else looks great! Love the alt. Is it just me or does the road grays have a hint of blue in there? Hopefully we'll see something like this come around soon with the new roads. Nice job.

Yeah, like I said, I haven't come up with a hat logo I really like, so for now I just used the current blue jay head without the 'J'. Once I do come up with something, I'll probably edit these.

And yes, the gray does have a blueish hue. Great eye for noticing that. I took a block colored in the gray usually used for road uniforms, put it next to a block with the powder blue, and made a third one and altered the coloring, comparing it to the other 2, until I came up with a mostly gray (cuz I'm not particularly wanting the powder blues to make a full comeback), but with a blue hue to kind of envoke the old craze without having to make it actually powder blue.

(Although with the wordmark close-ups, I can't really tell if I remembered to switch out the regular gray with the blueish gray or not. I'll have to check, and maybe fix that.)

this has to be one of the best jays concepts i've ever seen. i don't normally say "wow" when i open a thread on these boards, but this one made me (and now the people around me are confused..)

The colors, the styles, the simple jay head logo on the cap.. the way it should be. this concept is very well executed, and even as a die-hard red sox fan, i'd have to say that i absolutely love it. great work!

Love the concept, but I think the jay logo needs to be fixed. I like that you dropped the J from it, but now it looks flat and boring on the back. Try making the comb sweep back more and flow better, kinda like the original and the update logos did. Other than that I think it looks great! Love that the blue is back in Blue Jays!!
